Description

The Armory is a secluded pile of cobble in an area of Maple Canyon I would guess is rarely visited by climbers and a bit uncharacteristic of the area. The rock is lichen covered and a bit loose in spots and has no shade and a long approach. Probably not what the typical Maple climber is after.

Getting There

Hike up Middle Fork trail for 30 or 40 minutes from the main parking area. Continue past the arch and look for the Armory on your right as you turn the corner right toward the aspen grove ahead; straight or left is the Summit trail.

Additional directions to the Armory:
Once you get to the fork in the trail, DO NOT HEAD TOWARDS THE ARCH, follow the sign for "LOOP" trail to the right, stay on the trail for about 10 minutes, when you see a sign for "right fork", head towards right fork and look for a goat trail heading towards the backside of a large outcropping, this is the Armory. Bushwhacking is required. Aug 12, 2017
